    FE Civil Practice Problems (FECEPP)

    Comprehensive Practice for the Computer-Based FE Civil Exam

    FE Civil Practice Problems contains 466 problems designed to reinforce your knowledge of important civil engineering topics. Three-minute, multiple-choice problems illustrate the type and length of problem you’ll encounter on the FE Civil exam.


    Solutions proceed logically and are clear, complete, and easy to follow. Calculations use equations and nomenclature from the NCEES FE Reference Handbook to familiarize you with the reference you’ll have on exam day. Solutions are presented in whichever system of units (customary U.S. or SI) you’ll use during the exam, and units are meticulously identified and rigorously carried through in all calculations.

    I was trying to find some good review material seeing how I've been out of school for about a year. This book prepared me well for the exam. I will say the book is harder then the exam ( or at least the exam I took seeing how each one is different) but definetly worth the money I paid for it. Its a lot cheaper then paying for the exam again.

    The only negative things I can say is there are a lot of problems that were not on the test and I found a couple of problems with the wrong solution but overall I'd say I'm glad I bought it and it was the only material I studied before taking the exam. I passed and guessed on the last few because I ran out of time lol. (Posted on 5/20/2016)

    A powerful tool, but beware of several flaws Review by Customer
    Overall it's a great refresher for college students about to take the FE exam or those whom are taking it later in life; however, I do have a few issues with the book that no one else has brought up thus far. It seems that some sections of the book have the majority of problems relying on information not available in the NCEES Reference Manual. For example, I've found the Foundations section (18) to be completely dependent on subject matter not available in the reference manual. Multiple problems required use of a table that is not found in the NCEES Reference Manual. Other problems required use of equations also not found in the NCEES manual. Now, the majority of the problems in this book are solvable with only your brain and the NCEES Reference Manual, and I do understand that it's entirely possible that the FE exam WILL contain problems with subject matter not specifically mention in the reference manual, however this still doesn't give me a good impression of the book. I'm sure there are foundation problems which could have been created more in line with the NCEES Reference Manual.

    Beyond that flaw, I am finding the book to be helpful, along with the "FE Civil Review Manual" also written by Mr. Michael Lindeburg. I especially appreciated his on comments regarding the FE exam's actual usefulness and relation to real world problems. For those who are not aware, the FE exam problems are designed to be solvable in about 3 minutes or so. Most real world problems are neither designed as testing problems, nor are they all solvable in 3 minutes. (Posted on 3/19/2015)
